Do a <cfdump var="#CGI#">

then see which of those variables returns the value your looking for - if none of them does then you'll need to look at some other platform for you values. I had an issue with a server not returning the right values and had to revert to a javascript version of the variables. But see if the dump gets you anything close to what you are looking for first.
